hotmail pop and smtp servers


New Email
Dear Reader,

In outlook Express 6 after setting up POP3 account following message appears when trying to send e-mail via outgoing server (SMTP)

The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'Hotmail', Server: '', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): Yes, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

Please notice that incoming POP3 server
functions perfectly alright

Thanks for your time and effort.

PS. To clarify the situation I will be happy to answer any supplementary questions (if any).
